What’s On? IVA Has the Answer!

  |   Article

Internet Video Archive’s (IVA) metadata, trailers, and images help consumers decide what to watch, but once they discover the program they’re interested in, their next question is WHERE CAN I FIND IT? Is it available on Netflix?  On Amazon?  Hulu?  Where?

 

IVA has indexed links to providers such as Fandango, Atom Tickets, Netflix, Amazon Prime, Amazon Instant Video, Hulu, Google Play, HBO and iTunes to help our clients answer that question on their own sites and apps.  IVA captures offer types (Buy, Subscription, Free, Rent, etc.) as well as the delivery method (Ticket, Physical, OnDemand, etc.) by provider.  Localize the choices by what each provider has in their catalog by country too.  If you wanted to know what is on Netflix in Australia or see if Fandango is selling tickets to a title, you can help guide your users to the content they want to see.

 

IVA’s availability data includes “scheduled” or titles that are on linear TV.  IVA’s indexes networks such as CBS, ABC, NBC, FOX, CW, PBS, TBS, Nickelodeon, Discovery, Disney XD and more on the way.  Users will be able to see if the title they are interested in by the network it is showing on.

 

Your users will not only be able to learn about a title but also click through to the provider of their choice who offers the title.  You will see your return visits and time on site metrics jump when your users know you can help them throughout their content discovery experience.
